US President Barack Obama made a powerful plea to give diplomacy a chance to resolve a decade-old standoff with Iran over its nuclear program, as he vowed to veto any new sanctions bill.

Addressing foreign policy in the annual State of the Union speech, he also warned that "the fact is, that danger remains" and the United States had "to remain vigilant" in face of changing global threats.

In November, Tehran struck an interim deal struck with six global powers, under which Iranian leaders agreed to scale back their uranium enrichment in return for sanctions relief.
